ATV Street Legal Service
ATV Street Legal Service
This service provides you with a license plate and registration for your ATV.
We will mail you paperwork within 1 business day to be completed and returned to us.
You will owe 4-6% sales tax based on the NADA average value or vehicle purchase price, whichever is higher. If you have already paid sales tax, we will need proof in the form of a receipt or bill of sale. Tax exemptions may apply in specific cases. You can find your NADA value.
All you want to do is make your ATV street legal. All we want to do is help. That’s why we’ve removed the frustrating guesswork and dead-ends that are way too common with this process. In fact, we’ve removed the work for you entirely! Here’s what you can expect out of your hassle-free Dirt Legal conversion experience:
- Out-of-state tag and registration1 in 2–3 weeks, easily renewable online each year. Allow 3-12 weeks to receive your plate and registration if your vehicle is financed. Allow 5-8 weeks if your vehicle has only a bill of sale.
- New proof of ownership2, you will receive a title in your name 3–6 weeks later if not financing your vehicle.
- Dedicated agent support to guide you through the process and answer any questions about paperwork, state-to-state transfers, required parts, etc.
Why face hours of research, mounds of government paperwork, and ongoing headaches if you don’t have to? With a few docs and details from you, we handle all the heavy lifting. This is all you’ll need to do:
Proof of ownership: Choose from Title, Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin (MCO), Financing, or Bill of Sale above3. This is the documentation we need to show the bike is yours.
Checkout: Click Add to Cart and complete the checkout process. You’ll receive an email confirmation with your receipt and order number.
Vehicle information: Fill out the vehicle info form that appears after you check out. As long as you have the proof of ownership and a Vehicle Identification Number4 (VIN), we can legalize any dirt bike regardless of state.
Documents: Keep an eye on your mailbox. We’ll send you a checklist for the materials we need to handle the conversion on your behalf, including your proof of ownership, copy of ID, social (Can be sent directly to the DMV), notarized power of attorney4, and sales tax5 (if not already paid)
Send it in: Mail everything to us using the pre-paid envelope we’ve provided to make it as easy as possible for you. Congrats, your part’s done! Now simply wait to receive your license plate in the mail! We will email you a tracking number once it's on the way.

“Very easy process, excellent communication and only took a few weeks to have the plate in hand! Definitely recommend Dirt Legal to get your bike street legal!”
– Cole Holley, June 2019
“I ended up getting frustrated with all the different ‘recommendations’ online. I literally did nothing except fill out some paperwork Dirt Legal sent me. The whole thing took less than three weeks by the time I had the plate in my hand. I couldn’t be happier.”
– Brandon Cozier, March 2019
